Mega Man

Mega Man was one of the pieces I most wanted to make when I started work on the Space Invaders. At the time I thought “holy smokes, he is huge and complex….I’ll never make him”…fast forward a month or two and voila, Mega Man and […]


Contra was one of the few co-op games on the NES. Everyone knows this one….everyone knows the code for more lives… One of my friends at work suggested I make a Contra piece….so I did. I thought making a Spreadshot icon would be nice too. […]

Bubble Bobble

Bubble Bobble

I must admit that I have never actually played Bubble Bobble. A friend at work suggested I make a Bubble Bobble sprite piece…and so I did. This is actually the second one that I made, the first was a smaller piece used as a test […]
